WRIGHT TWP. — At halftime, Wyoming Area was right there with the defending District 2 champions.

The Warriors trailed Crestwood 7-4 at intermission only to see that deficit turn into a 14-4 loss at the hands of the Comets in the boys lacrosse opener on Tuesday at Crestwood High School.

Wyoming Area head coach Shaun Rohland said he has seen improvement from his team and a couple of bad bounces would have put the Warriors right in the game.

“We focused on our clears and our rides (in an exhibition with Wyoming Seminary),” he said. “We improved in that and moving forward we just have to sure up our defense.”

The Warriors got two goals and an assist from Jake Urban. Alex Hock had a goal and an assist, while Justin Joseph contributed a goal.

Between the pipes for Wyoming Area, Kurt Hager made 16 saves while seeing more than 30 shots from Crestwood. The Warriors were able to get 20 shots on goal.

“At halftime we were right that,” Rohland said. “That’s the positive. We had our shots on goal and we just need better shot selection.”

On Friday, the Warriors were faced with another difficult challenge as they hosted North Pocono at Tenth Street Elementary. The score of the game was not available at press time.

The Warriors will be back in action when they travel to Tunkhannock on Monday, April 18.
